BEAUTY AND THE BASTARD

Large_film_12727122_photo1

Nelli's life is right on track. She lives in a pristine suburb with her parents, she's been dating the same guy for years, and in a few months she'll be graduating from medical school. But there's one problem: Nelli has suddenly decided that she wants to be a singer. She's even got the voice to make her dream come true, but what she doesn't have is a demo tape for music producers, so she jumps at the chance to work with talented hip-hop artist Sune. What Nelli doesn't know is that Sune has bet his friends, who think he's a bit weak in the girlfriend department, that he can woo Nelli. The two eventually create a killer demo, which lands Nelli a record deal. But soon Nelli and Sune's relationship begins turning into something more than just musical, and Nelli's long-term boyfriend is not amused. Karukoski's powerful and inspiring debut feature is a film that everyone will be able to identify with.
